Licensure Board Opportunity
Are you a VETERAN and looking for an opportunity to serve the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania? If yes, there are several opportunities for you to serve as a public member on a licensure board.
VETERANS are specifically being sought after to serve on these boards in order to offer their military perspective and
to help address any military spouse portability concerns within these professions.
Licensure boards meet every other month in Harrisburg; meeting length varies depending on the amount of business before the board – a couple hours/half a work day would be a reasonable estimate. Members receive a per diem of $60. A public member on a licensure board may not currently hold a professional license regulated by another licensure board (i.e. a registered nurse cannot be the public member on the State Board of Accountancy).
Board of Accountancy: regulates licensure and
practice of public accountants and certified public accountants; establishes,
amends, and enforces continuing education requirements and professional conduct

practice of the barbering profession (including barber managers and barber
teachers); inspects, approves, and registers barber shops and schools, and
